Detailed Product Description
France, 2005, 1st edition. 382 pp. In French. New paperback.

Emmanuel Cauchy takes his nickname 'Doctor Vertical' from columns he writes for the magazine Vertical. He writes in his dual capacity as a guide and doctor attached to the mountain rescue in the Mont Blanc massif. At the time of his thousandth rescue, he recalls memories of fifteen years of practice of an extraordinary profession. He delves into this unique experience to compose a book funny, sometimes caustic, moving and without complacency.
 
It describes adventure mountaineering, helicopter and emergency medicine. Stories give you shivers down your back or you raise tears in his eyes. There are also episodes funny and absurd. Starting from facts, 'Doctor Vertical' has created a book without heroism or naive optimistism, which is a new testimony on mountain rescue and a tribute to those who love peaks. 

Biography of the author
Emmanuel Cauchy was born in 1960 in Normandy. For the past fifteen years, he has been a doctor of mountain rescue with the platoon gendarmerie high mountains (PGHM) from Chamonix. He exercises along the Hospital of Mont-Blanc. But the doctor is also Cauchy guide. He has participated in many sports or scientific expeditions on all summits of the world, combining ascents, medical research and emergency response.
 
Emmanuel Cauchy is also an author and director of documentaries (Jamie, the challenge, France 3; Summer in Chamonix, TF1; Virtual Everest, France 3 ...). And when he is not behind the camera, he is acts as a consultant for scientific or medical assistance during the filming of films for cinema (Himalayas, L'Enfance a conductor, James Bond - Tomorrow never dies, The Crimson Rivers ...). Dr. Cauchy is responsible and holder of the European project IFREMMONT (Institute for Training and Research in Medicine Mountain).
